Carlos D leaves ‘Interpol’ to pursue new goals
HollywoodNews.com: Interpol formed in 1997 in New York City and the original lineup consisted of members Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler, Carlos Dengler, and Greg Drudy. The band lost Drudy in 2000, who was replaced by Sam Fogarino. Now despite releasing their new single “Lights” off the upcoming new album, member Carlos D has decided that he is going to depart the band to pursue new goals.
Below is the statement the band posted on their website:
As some of you have surely heard, Interpol has completed it’s new album.
It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, New York, and mixed with Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery, London.
The four of us poured our collective heart into this music and we are very proud and excited to share it.
It’s a heavy record. But we’re feeling limber; and we’re going to carry it all around the world for you.
Touring begins this summer, so check here soon for announcements and show dates.

We eagerly await the opportunity to reconvene with you all
